If you have been placed into a developmental math (LAM008 or LAM009) or English (LAE013) class and/or you are concerned about your readiness for college, then please consider enrolling in one of our free Summer Success Academies.  This free commuter program (limited overnight housing may be available) is designed to give students a jumpstart to their college experience.  After completing math and/or writing refresher courses, students may be eligible to bypass developmental courses.  Additionally, all students successfully completing the program will earn your next math or English class for FREE for the Fall 2019 semester!
